THE BUDDHIST ARCHIVE OF PHOTOGRAPHY

Founded in 2005 in Luang Prabang in Northern Laos, the archive contains 35.000 historical photographs taken and collected by the Buddhist monks over 120 years. This site provides a brief overview of these photographs, of ongoing and past research, and links to more elaborate sites of the British Library, the National Library of Laos, and the Buddhist Heritage Project, our long term research partners.
